Nature  I  Passage  I  Time  I  Comfort

Slow adventure – inspiring connections with the outdoors. A chance to explore and engage with wild, open and natural places. To journey through breath-taking landscapes at a slower, immersive pace.

Creating memories through meaningful experiences as you invest time in a place, in its traditions and community. Surrendering to the natural forces of the environment as you reflect, reconnect and become closer to nature.

Slow adventure brings together people who enjoy sharing their sense of place with visitors by sharing traditional skills, local knowledge, storytelling and spending time together in nature. Each slow adventure has been crafted to offer unique experiences by working with carefully selected people and businesses.

Slow adventure represents a responsible travel choice, where core elements are green forms of transport, a desire to learn about other cultures and environments, the interaction with and understanding of local cultural and natural rhythms, and an appreciation of both place and one’s place.

To encapsulate this ethic of care in tourism products, we have created, and trademarked, a quality label which will provide a structured approach for business creation of new slow adventure experiences.  This label has been designed to guide the travel choices of visitors who seek to exercise their responsibility through high quality guided slow adventure experiences.

The logo and slow adventures were developed as part of the Slow Adventure in Northern Territories Project which is co-financed by the European Union’s Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme. All enquiries and bookings now come through Slow Adventure Co-operative Ltd, an open membership not-for profit company which represents and assists its members to market slow adventures in Scotland.
